I'm not sure where to start really. I guess I am just looking for some friendly words of encouragement to tell me that things will get there. I was in hospital under a section from September to December last year and through that time I had about 3 different medication changes due to different reasons. I ended up on a combination on venlafaxine 275mg and rispiridone 4mg. This combination had been working but about 2 weeks ago after feeling very positive about things and things being stable for me things started to go downhill for me again. I was using my support systems but still ended up taking 3 over does in the space of a week. Due to this I had a review yesterday with my psychiatrist, cpn and mho. It was decided that I needed to change my anti psychotic again and have been put back on aripiprazole 15mg with a view to increase this to 30mg in 2 weeks then start the depot. I am feeling very unsettled and I am not sure if this is due to my medication change or what is going on in my head. I guess I am just frustrated with everything and want to give up

Honestly not so great. My thoughts are running away with themselves and I no longer have control. I am going to have to take an overdose to try and stop them. Unfortunately this is the way I have always felt with it. I have been trying to stay positive but it is too exhausting

I know you want to stop the thoughts and it is totally understandable but overdosing isn't the answer.

I understand the need to stop the thoughts. Overdosing is not the answer, though. Not sure of your situation, but maybe you should talk to your psychiatrist and see if something more can be done. It took time and several different medications for me to stabilize. Didn't make the problems go away, but I stopped wanting to abandon everything and go live on the street.

Hey,
I'm sorry that you're feeling this way, so many people are going through this. I've been through it myself- diagnosed 7 years ago and it's been a tough journey to get to where I am today. Ive started writing a mental health blog, I'm going to update it weekly sharing my experiences and how I manage my mental health.
